Commonwealth to hold Presidential Primary Tuesday, March 6

By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor

Region – Massachusetts will be part of the “Super Tuesday” Presidential Primary Tuesday, March 6. Voters will go to the polls that day to select whom they would like to see on the final ballot Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Republicans may choose from GOP candidates: former U.S. Congressman and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum.

President Barack Obama is running unopposed in the Democratic Party Primary. Those voters who are registered as Independents may pick either the Republican or Democratic ballot to vote from March 6.

Other states that will hold Super Tuesday primaries include Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.

Locally, Westborough will also be holding its Annual Town Election March 6. The only contested race that day will be for two open spots on the Board of Selectmen. George Barrette and Denzil Drewry, both of whom have served prior terms on the board, along with political newcomer Andrew Reinach, are all vying for the two spots that are being vacated by incumbents Lydia Goldblatt and George Thompson.
